The Welsh Government is currently consulting on a framework for regional investment for Wales.
The proposal can be found here and sets out the Welsh Government’s thinking on the future of regional investment outside the European Union.
The proposals set out in the consultation are specifically looking at how to invest any replacement funding that comes from UK Government following our withdrawal from the European Union.
While we would encourage all organisations to submit a response to this consultation, WCVA will be submitting a response based on the general views of the third sector.
We will be running a number of virtual engagement events in April to gather the views of the third sector to inform this response.
Webinar: A framework for regional investment consultation

Virtual round-table discussions
